the first debate. john king has been looking at the latest numbers. what else does it tell you? >> it's important to look at this poll. thest a small lead. that's yet another poll the president's kept that narrow lead in ohio. you mentioned the horse race. here's one of the biggest factors. in a battleground state like this, the president's getting the democrats, romney's getting a republicans, the candidate who wins among independents is likely to win. that is critical the watch in the last week to election day. there's also an age divide. it's important as well. you see a huge leap for the president. 56-38, among voters under 50. that's an important part of his constituency. republicans need the older voters by 2i-46. governor romney would like that to be bigger. there's also a racial and gender gap, if you will. i want to put it this way. the president is, if he is above 40% in the white vote, he tends to win a state because of the demographics like ohio. you see them here, 41% of white men, 46% of white women. if the president can hold those numbers, it's most likely he would hang
in ohio right now? chief national correspondent john king has some answers. >> well, anderson, that narrow ohio lead for the president is within the poll's sampling error but it is yet another poll showing the president with a small persistent lead in the state of ohio. let's take a closer look at why it is happening in this state that is so important in the pick for president. here's the main reason right here. governor romney gets the republicans. the president gets the democrats but at the moment, in our survey, the president has a narrow lead among ohio voters who define themselves as independents. that is the battleground in a big battleground state, if you win the independents you are likely to win. governor romney close but the president with an important edge among independent voters. there's also an age divide, if you look at likely voters in ohio. among voters under the age of 50, there's a big gap, 18 point lead for the president among voters under the age of 50. a smaller lead for governor romney among voters 50 and older so the republicans are withstanding the attacks on the r
increasingly important presidential battleground. we're talking about the commonwealth of virginia. john king spent some time there talking to people and poll sters. >> if you look at the map miguel is in colorado that's one of the red states the president turned blue. if you lo at the map you see all this red. how did obama win last time? he woven it from all of them right here in fast growing northern virginia. >> reporter: urgency in a place once reliably red. >> this is the republican party in virginia. >> mitt romney's path to the white house runs through virginia and to win it he must run strong within an hour's drive of washington. >> it's all about northern virginia. there have been so many people from the northeast, from decratic areas, that they have turned a solid red state into a purple state. >> reporter: recent polls show a dead heat. >> if you look at the dozen polls in virginia taken before the first presidential debate on october 3rd, obama was ahead in all 12. if you look at the eight polls taken after the first presidential debate, romney was ahead in 6 out of the 8. and it
look right now in the race to 270 electoral votes. john king is here at the magic wall. on this day with three days to go, it's going to be complicate d. >> we know it's close and we have to say advantage to the president. but how big, that's the open question. we start the final weekend 237 strong or leaning the president's way. 206 leaning governor romney's way. the race of course is to 270. the president is ending withal rallies in iowa, wisconsin and ohio. why? because that's his easiest path to 270. if the president can take iowa, can take wisconsin and can take ohio, it's game over. if nothing else changed on the map, that would get the president to 271 and it would be game over. that's why the president is ending his campaign right here in the hardland. places where he can talk about the auto bailout. that's one way. that's the president's quickest way. i won't say it's the easest. it means that governor romney has to take the state of ohio. that was the president's fastest way. how does governor romney get there? he has to win the state of florida. he needs florida. he has t
for the state is tight, too, but if there's an edge right now, it belongs to the president. cnn's john king breaks down the numbers for us. >> so that's a narrow ohio lead for the president, but there's yet another poll showing the president holding on to a small, but persistent lead in ohio. let's take a closer look at just why it's happening. one reason is this. the president gets most democrats. governor romney gets most republicans. the president at the moment has a narrow lead, but a significant lead among independents. there's also an age gap, if you will. if you want to look at the vote in ohio, likely voters in our poll, those under 50, a big 18-point advantage for the obama-biden ticket over romney-ryan. this encouraging to the republicans, their leading among older voters, but they need the margin. governor romney would need that margin to be a little bit bigger than six points to expect to carry the margin. ohio, the auto bailout tends to help the president do better among white, working class voters. among white men, the president is over 40%. you might say well, he's getting be
correspondent john king is in denver for us right now. john, you're taking a closer look at this poll. what else are you finding? >> reporter: wolf, because of that dead heat you can feel the intensity as both campaigns try to gin upturnout including in the early voting period which ends tomorrow here in colorado. both candidates doing well where they need to, you might say a slight edge for the president. i'll show you what i mean. in denver and bolder, the two biggest urban areas in the state of colorado, more democratic voters. 63% for the president, 34% for governor romney in the urban areas of denver and bolder. that's what the president needs to keep for turnout on election day. suburbs a smaller but significant advantage for the president in the denver suburbs. 53% to 45% for governor romney. if you look at the more rural, conservative, the rest of colorado, that's why governor romney's in this race. he's getting 55% of the vote to 43% for the president in the rest of the state. as you know the state well, wolf, the president is here today. governor romney is due back on saturday. the pre
. >> for this particular news cycle. >> it is. john king interrupts him and says even for disaster relief and he continues on saying it's immoral and makes no sense. >> that's the wonderful version of ideological consistency that occasionally erupts in republican primaries. when they're going way over into territory, which is what we was trying to do. we'll see how he handles the -- be that video fwigz to be on a loop on this network and others for the next couple days. >> and you know, steve, i want to ask you in terms of looking -- we don't know the effects of the storm and its toll will be and we are concerned about the damage that it may cause and the lives that may be lost and any victims that are in the way of the storm, but in terms of the campaign, the fact that we are one week out from the election, the question is, how does each candidate account for this? and it looks like obama is going to stay in washington, take on the role of commander in chief as he probably has to. the bigger question is, what does mitt romney do? how does he -- what does had he do as far as the optics of looking like he'
that mitt romney, during the primaries, in answer to a point-blank question from john king, about whether or not we should get rid of fema and send this responsibilities to the states, he said, yes, and then even better, you could go further and privatize it. i mean, the aftermath of a storm, is one in which it needs a coordinated effort between state, federal, and local government, which president obama and governor christie and governor malloy and the other elected officials in the region affected have been doing yeoman's work. i shudder to think about what we would do down here in florida in the aftermath of a storm if we didn't have fema to coordinate everything. >> the koch brothers' super pac -- the koch brothers' super pac, americans for prosperity, said today that they're going to spend $3 million on anti-obama advertising in pennsylvania and michigan, all the way up until election day. now, six days, five days, a lot of impact there. what's your take on this? i mean, is this going to have an impact? are we going to see the full throat of citizens united down the stretch? >> i'm s
it turn now to our chief national correspondent john king, who is in southwest of me, in the town of cincinnati, ohio. so, john, it is very good to see you. i've been wanting to talk to you about this for a while now. so mitt romney is there, going to be there later on. and he is in -- going to be in ohio. was in wisconsin earlier. the latest cnn poll of polls shows that obama is up by 3 points. so take a look at that. what can we read, if anything, into those numbers? is that sort of within the margin of error or not? is it enough to -- for the obama campaign to feel safe or no? >> well, it is close enough, don, for the romney campaign to overcome an election day if they have a significant turnout. a significant intensity, a significant energy event. one of the things that is interesting about ohio, some of the other swing states have gone up and down. the president was up 3, then tide, then governor up was up 1 or 2 or the president's lead has fluctuated. ohio has been steady throughout the general election season. if you go back to april, we knew governor romney would be the no
. >> it's worth repeating the debate. john king asked if disaster relief would be better handled by the states. quote, absolutely. any time you have occasion to send it back to the states, that's the right direction. yesterday changing his story a bit. >> yeah. you know, when we screwed up in newspapers, we would call them clarifications, not corrections. this has taken them 48 hours to come up with a statement of the status quo. states take the lead. fema gets the funding it needs. it wasn't just that back in the debate he said states should take the lead on everything. he said that borrowing money for fema was immoral. it was a moral issue. that that question was of great immoral value to him in looking after hurricane victims. and maybe that's one of the reasons why if you look at the poll numbers, we just got some interesting poll numbers from "the washington post" yesterday, 78% of americans approve of the president's handling. of this disaster. and it's about half that level for mitt romney. in a very close election. when you've got an incumbent getting 78% approval for any
